Setting a winning pace

I want to start by saying thank you to everyone for signing my birthday card. Serving Oregon in the Senate is the greatest birthday present, and I'm thankful every day to be representing people like you.

Every birthday I am reminded of all the progress we've achieved throughout the years — but I know there's more to do, and that's why I'm not slowing down!

On Saturday, November 4, I will complete 67 laps on a track – one for every year of my life. With every lap, I'll be thinking about the tough races we're fighting to win and the movement we're growing to defend the Democratic Senate Majority by winning competitive races in Montana, Ohio, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. That goal will keep me on track as the miles add up.

Across the country, there are many tough races we need to win to retake the House majority, keep the Senate majority, and hold on to the White House. I'm focused on winning tough Senate seats in 2024, and that's why I'm running laps to raise money for the most competitive races.

You can help save the Senate by sponsoring a lap, a mile, or the whole race. Our candidates are doing the hard work to get across the finish line, and we need to make sure they have all the resources they need. If you're ready to get to it, please make a donation of $11 to the Blue Wave Project today.
